Public Law 97-280, passed by the 97th Congress of the United States of America, declares the Bible to Be the "Word of God" and directs citizens to "study and apply the teachings of the Holy Scriptures. "The Bible teaches that the truthfulness of an issue is to be sought and should stand on no less than two or more witnesses (Deuteronomy 19:15). A diligent search for truth on the safety and effectiveness of vaccinations reveals there are many studied, informed and qualified witnesses who have found and teach that there are serious health risks involved with vaccinations. Even Senate Bill 732 before the 103rd Congress of the United States known as the "Comprehensive Child Health Immunization Act of 1993", made known the fact that there are risks to vaccines. The following words are from that bill: Vaccine information materials should be simplified to ensure that parents can understand the benefits and risks of vaccines (emphasis added).

Not that bizarre... it's a UNICODE issue.... same with language.

Wikipedia pages use UTF-8 character set so when you so when you copy and paste say Russian: Российская Федерация​ ATS accepts that

Windows default setting is charset=iso-8859-1

Now ATS is compatible with all unicode characters, but it can be a real pain writing in them unless you have an awesome memory or don't mind tedious code typing...

For examaple

Chemical Names...

Carbon Dioxide CO2 If I copy and paste this from any web I get CO2

If I use unicode I get CO₂

The character set can be found here for subscript 2. For use in posting in forums that have Unicode activated you want the html listing under 'encoding'

This works on mathematics...

√ ∞

Greek Symbols;




Odd stuff;

⋔ ⊛ ♲

The Planets;

Mercury ☿

Venus ♀

Chess Anyone?

♞ ♜ ♘

♞ ♜ ♘

♞ ♜ ♘

Complete database here

Miscellaneos Symbols

Now YOU TOO can pretend you are smarter than the average poster

@Loam: Excellent work! You deserve both a star and a flag!
(Once I figure out how to give them, you will get them…)

This is an amazing post. Extremely accurate and immensely helpful to new ATS members such as myself, not to mention those who have little or no prior experience with BBCode.

I took the liberty of creating an 8-page pdf document with a collection of the most important BBCodes mentioned in this post. I split them into their respective categories and placed them in tables with 3 columns (desired action, BBCode images from the post and what the code produces).

Unfortunately I can only upload the pdf at, since I don’t own a premium account at any other file sharing website. I could upload it to other sites as well, but there are limits to what you can do without a premium account (limited times that the file can be downloaded, limited file size etc.).

Once you have the document, feel free to post it at any other place you deem fit.

The link to the file is this:
A Guide to BBCode on ATS.pdf

Please remember that the ATS member “Loam” provided all of the information mentioned in this post. I claim no rights to this work. The pdf is just a compact presentation of some of the posted information.

Thank you.

What code do you use to get those cool display boxs that you use?

If you quote a post you can see what codes were used, it's the easiest way.

I use and like this thread so much it's still in my favorites almost a year later

Yeah, I love this thread, and it deserves a BUMP !!!

I just linked a new member here because it's so comprehensive, and it's something a lot of members don't take full advantage of.

[color=800080]So [color=00FF00]please [color=magenta]excuse [color=goldenrod]the [color=turquiose]mess

so if I wanted to insert unicode it's just a matter of inseting it directly to the post text? ♱ Like: ♰


[color=4E4848]HAHA! you can barely see my secret code, now can you!

[color=4A4344] this is my conspiracy text! only my top secret friends can access this message, so if you get this message, that means that you are one of my top secret friends!

Great thread, loam!
I finally figured out how to make images to hyperlink thanks to you.
I'm having trouble aligning the signature image to the right, I get all
weird codes when I do that.
What am I doing wrong?
